A woman who has had experience with whooping cough tells how to prevent the dangerous consequences from it. “Our three children took whooping cough last summer,” she says, “our baby boy being only three months old. Owing to giving them Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy, they lost none of their plumpness and came out in much better health that other children whose parents did not use the remedy. Our oldest little girl would call strongly out for cough syrup between whoops.” Jesse Pinkey Hall, Springfield, Ala.
